This should be a paradox: on the one hand we have highest technical precision and clarity and on the other hand gentle sonority, deep emotions and a dancelike buoyancy.

[Elizabeth Wallfisch] fills Telemann’s music with life and breath, supported by the L’Orfeo Baroque Orchestra with brilliance and temperament. Michi Gaigg has yet again taken up the position of concert master, having left the direction to Wallfisch Together with her musicians she sweeps through the fast movements like a storm and performs the slow movements with incomparable expression, now and again in deep contemplation with Wallfisch’s violin a breath soaring high.
